The film was based on a novel 旅猫リポート by Hiro Arikawa, the story is about Satoru who embark a travel to meet the potential people who can take care of his precious cat name Nana but during the process of his travel, a story from his childhood & his story with the people who consider his friends also unfolds.

I appreciate so much the plot, there's something very humane with it that the cinematography also blends. I adore the shots of the places that tell the story of Satoru's acquaintances. I appreciate Fukushi Sota here though he's still stiff at some parts I appreciate his improvement & his filmography somehow ranges from mainstream to middle. I like how the conversations & dialogues just flow naturally between the character & their past to present.
I actually smiled at some dialogues between the cat because whenever I observe my cat, I guess cat really loves the sunlight. Also there was a part that Nana is waiting for Satoru & my cat also do that waiting whenever he waits to his favorite chosen one.

The final act, it gives me a thought that when we connect with cats, dogs or any pets that we consider as a family or when you share a special connection with a person considered to be different from the view of others; there will be people who will not understand that connection despite the deepness & history of it but as day goes by the connection is still there & it will remain a special part of your life.
I used to have my first pet cat when I was in my grade school but there was one cat that was very special to us; my dad didn't like it at first, my mom, sister are cat lovers too and I remembered how I grieved when our first cat died, we put him in a box put flowers & buried him at the back of our apartment but our first cat brings joy and happiness in our home that I guess helps me to be more empathetic.
Now, we have this big cat, he's been with us since my junior year in high school so basically it's been 8-9 years since we take care of him and I guess our cat learns to adapt with us since then that he's not a bit of a troublemaker anymore and he brings joy in our home.

Enough of my cat stories, but I recommend this film if you're looking for a simple yet genuine film about people & animals/with their pets that has a good plot & cinematography (there's nothing really big about the cinematography but I appreciate the effort). Also bring tissues, if you're a softie, crybaby like me.

I cried. I cried so hard that I actually felt sick. I can't remember this ever happening to me. This was a wonderful movie but so incredibly sad that just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes.

Fukushi Sota was amazing as Satoru - and Satoru was an amazing character. Inspiring in his inherent sweetness and kindness. The way he touched the lives of everyone around him, the way he brought the best out of people! Roles like that suit Fukushi Sota so well because he truly has the sweetest smile, he has the ability to make his eyes laugh!

The movie also featured the late Takeuchi Yuko as Satoru's aunt, Noriko, which added to the sadness of it. Because she was a great actress and her death two years back made the world a little... less.

Takahata Mitsuki as the voice of Nana the Cat was perfectly chosen, too. Nana's petulance but also his - yes, the cat was a male, though Takahata Mitsuki is female - love for Satoru, the way Nana adored his owner and stayed with him till Satoru's very last moments.

A beautiful, but also a terribly sad movie. Don't watch it if you feel depressed or down. But do watch it if you feel like having a good cry. The movie is worth your tears.
